  • In honor of Michele, who is unable to finish the week but had preselected this quote - The following quote is taken from The Fiery Cross by Diana Gabaldon, chapter 1. Copyright© 2001 by Diana Gabaldon. All rights reserved. -- ScarlettO, 16:17:50 08/03/15 Mon
    "I woke to the patter of rain on canvas, with the feel of my first husband’s kiss on my lips. I blinked, disoriented, and by reflex put my fingers to my mouth. To keep the feeling, or to hide it? I wondered, even as I did so.
    Jamie stirred and murmured in his sleep next to me, his movement rousing a fresh wave of of of scent from the cedar branches under our bottom quilt. Perhaps the ghost’s passing had disturbed him. I frowned at the empty air outside our lean-to.

    Go away, Frank, I thought sternly.

    Shouldn’t I come to see her married?

    I couldn’t tell whether the words had formed themselves in my thoughts, or whether they—and that kiss—were merely the product of my own subconscious."


    JustGina and I will be alternating the remainder of the week. There will probably not be a theme beyond, "Stuff we like." LOL

    Michele, we're sending hugs your way.

    QOTD Monday August 3rd 2015 Outlander:
    The following quote is taken from Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, chapter 1. Copyright (c) 1991 by Diana Gabaldon. All rights reserved.
    "Sitting up on the side of the ancient bed, he bounced gently up and down, creating a piercing rhythmic squeak. The Hoovering in the hall stopped abruptly. After a minute or two of bouncing, he gave a loud, theatrical groan and collapsed backward with a twang of protesting springs. I giggled helplessly into a pillow, so as not to disturb the breathless silence outside.
    Frank waggled his eyebrows at me. “You’re supposed to moan ecstatically, not giggle,”he admonished in a whisper. “She’ll think I’m not a good lover.”
    “You’ll have to keep it up for longer than that, if you expect ecstatic moans,” I answered. “Two minutes doesn’t deserve any more than a giggle.”


    “Inconsiderate little wench. I came here for a rest, remember?”

    “Lazybones. You’ll never manage the next branch on your family tree unless you show a bit more industry than that.”

    The following quotation is from Voyager by Diana Gabaldon. Copyright 1994. All Rights Reserved. Chapter 1. The Corbie’s Feast


    “There was a rustle near his ear, and he turned his head to see the crow. It stood on the grass a foot away, a blotch of wind-ruffled black feathers, regarding him with a bead-bright eye. Deciding that he posed no threat, it swiveled its neck with casual ease and jabbed its thick bill into Jack Randall’s eye.”

    The following quote is taken from A Breath of Snow and Ashes by Diana Gabaldon, Chapter 44. Scotchee. Copyright© 2005 by Diana Gabaldon. All rights reserved.



    “And so he began haltingly to speak – in Gaelic, as it was the only tongue that didn’t seem to require any effort. He understood that he was to speak of what filled his heart, and so began with Scotland – and Culloden. Of grief. Of loss. Of fear.

    And in the speaking turned from past to future, where he saw these three specters loom again, cold creatures coming toward him out of the fog, looking through empty eyes.

    Another stood among them – Jack Randall – confusingly on both sides of him. Those eyes were not empty, but alive, intent in a misty face. Had he killed the man, or not? If he had, did the ghost follow at his heels? Or if he had not, was it the thought of vengeance unsatisfied that haunted him, taunted him with its imperfect memory?

    The following quote is taken from A Breath of Snow and Ashes by Diana Gabaldon, Chapter 10. Duty Calls. Copyright© 2005 by Diana Gabaldon. All rights reserved.

    ”Don’t be afraid, laddie. It doesna hurt a bit, to die.” He missed his footing and staggered, caught himself and stood still, a taste of metal on the back of his tongue.

    His heart was thumping, suddenly, for no reason, as though he had run miles. He saw the cabin, certainly, and heard the calling of the jays in the half-leafed chestnut trees. But he saw even more clearly Murtagh’s face, the grim lines of it relaxing into peace and the deep-set black eyes fixed on his, shifting in and out of focus, as though his godfather looked at once at him and at something far beyond him. He felt the weight of Murtagh’s body in his arms, growing suddenly heavy as he died.

    The vision vanished, as abruptly as it had come, and he found himself standing next to a rain puddle, staring at a wooden duck half-mired in the mud.”

    The following quote is taken from A Breath of Snow and Ashes by Diana Gabaldon, Chapter 113. The Ghosts of Culloden. Copyright© 2005 by Diana Gabaldon. All rights reserved.



    Randall had grunted with the blow – Christ, he could hear it – and jerked aside staggering, but turning as he fell, grasping Murtagh’s wrist, dragging him down in a shower of spray from the wet gorse they fell through.

    They had rolled away into a hollow, locked together, struggling, and he had flung himself through the clinging plants in pursuit, some weapon – what, what had he held? – in his fist.

    But the feel of it faded against his skin; he felt the weight of the thing in his hand, but there was no shape of hilt or trigger to remind him, and it was gone again.

    Leaving him with that one image: Murtagh. Murtagh, teeth clenched and bared as he struck. Murtagh, running, coming to save him.

    The following quote is taken from A Breath of Snow and Ashes by Diana Gabaldon, Chapter 113. The Ghosts of Culloden. Copyright© 2005 by Diana Gabaldon. All rights reserved.


    ”Jack Randall stood still. His sword was in his hand, but he made no effort to raise it. Only stood there, that odd smile on his lips, dark eyes burning in Jamie’s own.
    If he’d been able to break that gaze . . . but he couldn’t, and so caught the blur of movement behind Randall. Murtagh, running, bounding tussocks like a sheep. And the glint of his godfather’s blade – had he seen that, or only imagined it? No matter; he’d known without doubt from the cock of Murtagh’s arm, and seen before it happened the murderous strike come upward toward the Captain’s red-clad back.


    But Randall spun, warned maybe by some change in his eyes, the sob of Murtagh’s breath – or only by a soldier’s instinct. Too late to avoid the thrust, but soon enough that the dirk missed its fatal aim into the kidney”

    I'm running late today and forgot to post the one I wanted. So here's a bit to tide ye over until this evening.


    Monday The following quotation is from Written In My Own Heart’s Blood by Diana Gabaldon. Copyright 2014. All Rights Reserved. Chapter 21 . Bloody Men

    “They couldna be marrit in kirk, for the banns couldna be called, and they’d be discovered the moment they came out of hiding to speak to a priest. So they stayed hidden until Ellen – that would be my grannie, aye? – was big wi’ child, and then came out. Her brothers couldna object to the marriage at that point, and so they were wed.” He shrugged. “So I was only wondering: would Friends think a coming child a dire circumstance?”

    Rachel stared at him.

    “If thee thinks that I will lie with thee without marriage, Ian Murray,” she said, in measured tones, “thee has no notion just how dire thy own circumstances might become.”

    I've enjoyed sharing a few of the lines that I missed not being in the Starz series. I hope that you have enjoyed them also. This last one was another heart breaker for me.

    I know it does, mo duinne. And that's why you will go now. So I'll know there is someone still who minds for me." He drew me close again, kissed me gently and whispered in Gaelic, "He will let you go because he thinks you are helpless. I know you are not." Releasing me, he said in English, "I love you. Go now."

    On a lighter note.

    "I'm making love to my wife," he panted, breathless between giggling and fighting.

    "Well, ye could find a more suitable place for it," she said, raising the other eyebrow. "That floor'll give ye splinters in your arse."

    I worked a long day and I'm afraid that when I finally sit down I won't get up till the morning. So here is an early Wednesday quote. These are a few more of my favorite lines I would have like to have been included in the series. Perhaps you may agree. Enjoy.


    "Jesus, Claire. I thought ye were dead, sure. You…you began to…go, somehow, You had the most awful look on your face, like ye were frightened to death. I - pulled ye back from the stone. I stopped ye, I shouldna have done so - I'm sorry, lassie."

    Let me say that I am loving the Starz Outlander. But this week will be a few of the lines I wish had been in the show.

    The following quote is taken from Voyager by Diana Gabaldon, chapter 11, The Torremolinos Gambit. Copyright ©1994 by Diana Gabaldon, All Rights Reserved.

    "'I had meant to thank you sometime, Major,' the Scot said softly.

    Grey was startled. 'Thank me? For what?'

    The Scot looked up, eyes dark over the finished game.

    'For that night at Carryarrick where we first met.' His eyes were steady on Grey’s. 'For what ye did for my wife.'

    'You remembered,' Grey said hoarsely.

    'I hadna forgotten,' Fraser said simply. Grey steeled himself to look across the table, but when he did so, he found no hint of laughter in the slanted blue eyes.

    Fraser nodded at him, gravely formal. 'Ye were a worthy foe, Major; I wouldna forget you.'

    John Grey laughed bitterly. Oddly enough, he felt less upset than he had thought he would, at having the shameful memory so explicitly recalled.

    'If you found a sixteen-year-old shitting himself with fear a worthy foe, Mr. Fraser, then it is little wonder that the Highland army was defeated!'

    Fraser smiled faintly.

    'A man that doesna shit himself with a pistol held to his head, Major, has either no bowels, or no brains.'"

    "It had finally occurred to him to ask; not the question he had been asking all along, but the more important one. He had done it at the conclusion of a game of chess, which Fraser had won. The guard was standing at the door, ready to escort Fraser back to his cell; as the prisoner had risen from his seat, Grey had stood up, too.

    'I shall not ask you again why you left the prison,' he had said, calmly conversational. 'But I will ask you—why did you come back?'

    Fraser had frozen briefly, startled. He turned back and met Grey’s eyes directly. For a moment he said nothing. Then his mouth curled up in a smile.

    'I suppose I must value the company, Major; I can tell ye, it’s not the food.'"

    The following quote is taken from Voyager by Diana Gabaldon, chapter 9, The Wanderer. Copyright ©1994 by Diana Gabaldon, All Rights Reserved.

    "Clearly neither force nor threat would work in gaining the truth. Reluctantly, he realized that there was only one course open to him, if he still wished to pursue the gold. He must put aside his feelings about the man and take Quarry’s suggestion. He must pursue an acquaintance, in the course of which he might worm out of the man some clue that would lead him to the hidden treasure.

    If it existed, he reminded himself, turning to his prisoner. He took a deep breath.

    'Mr. Fraser,' he said formally, 'will you do me the honor to take supper tomorrow in my quarters?'

    He had the momentary satisfaction of having startled the Scottish bastard, at least. The blue eyes opened wide, and then Fraser regained the mastery of his face. He paused for a moment, and then bowed with a flourish, as though he wore a kilt and swinging plaid, and not damp prison rags.

    'It will be my pleasure to attend ye, Major,' he said."

    The following quote is taken from Voyager by Diana Gabaldon, chapter 9, The Wanderer. Copyright ©1994 by Diana Gabaldon, All Rights Reserved.

    "Straightening up from what too late struck him as a most undignified posture, Grey raised his head and looked straight into the face of James Fraser.

    He was no more than six feet away. He stood still as one of the red deer, the moor wind brushing over him, with the rising sun tangled in his hair.

    They stood frozen, staring at each other. The smell of the sea came faintly on the wind. There was no sound but the sea wind and the singing of meadowlarks for a moment. Then Grey drew himself up, swallowing to bring his heart down from his throat.

    'I fear you take me at a disadvantage, Mr. Fraser,' he said coolly, fastening his breeches with as much self-possession as he could muster.

    The Scot’s eyes were the only part of him to move, down over Grey and slowly back up. Looked over his shoulder, to where six armed soldiers stood, pointing their muskets. Dark blue eyes met his, straight on. At last, the edge of Fraser’s mouth twitched, and he said, 'I think ye take me at the same, Major.'"

    The following quote is taken from Voyager by Diana Gabaldon, chapter 9, The Wanderer. Copyright ©1994 by Diana Gabaldon, All Rights Reserved.

    “'I am a prisoner, Major,' the Scot said politely. 'Not an interpreter.'
    'Your assistance would be—appreciated,' Grey said, trying to infuse the word with significance without offering outright bribery. 'Conversely,' his tone hardened, 'a failure to render legitimate assistance—'
    'It is not legitimate for ye either to extort my services or to threaten me, Major.' Fraser’s voice was a good deal harder than Grey’s.
    'I did not threaten you!' The edge of the letter-opener was cutting into his hand; he was forced to loosen his grip.
    'Did ye no? Well, and I’m pleased to hear it.' Fraser turned toward the door. 'In that case, Major, I shall bid ye good night.'
    Grey would have given a great deal simply to have let him go. Unfortunately, duty called. 'Mr. Fraser!'
    The Scot stopped, a few feet from the door, but didn’t turn.
    Grey took a deep breath, steeling himself to it. 'If you do what I ask, I will have your irons struck off,' he said.
    Fraser stood quite still. Young and inexperienced Grey might be, but he was not unobservant. Neither was he a poor judge of men. Grey watched the rise of his prisoner’s head, the increased tension of his shoulders, and felt a small relaxation of the anxiety that had gripped him since the news of the wanderer had come.
    'Mr. Fraser?' he said.
    Very slowly, the Scot turned around. His face was quite expressionless. 'You have a bargain, Major,' he said softly."

    The following quote is taken from Voyager by Diana Gabaldon, chapter 8, Honor's Prisoner. Copyright ©1994 by Diana Gabaldon, All Rights Reserved.

    "He had come to himself moments later, slumped against a tree, facing a circle of ferocious-looking Highlanders, all in their plaids. In the midst of them stood Red Jamie Fraser—and the woman.

    Grey clenched his teeth. Curse that woman! If it hadn’t been for her—well, God knew what might have happened. What had happened was that she had spoken. She was English, a lady by her speech, and he—idiot that he
    was!—had leapt at once to the conclusion that she was a hostage of the vicious Highlanders, no doubt kidnapped for the purpose of ravishment. Everyone said that Highlanders indulged in rapine at every opportunity, and took delight in dishonoring Englishwomen; how should he have known otherwise!

    And Lord John William Grey, aged sixteen and filled to the brim with regimental notions of gallantry and noble purpose, bruised, shaken, and fighting the pain of his broken arm, had tried to bargain, to save her from her fate. Fraser, tall and mocking, had played him like a salmon, stripping the woman half-naked before him to force from him information about the position and strength of his brother’s regiment. And then, when he had told all he could, Fraser had laughingly revealed that the woman was his wife. They’d all laughed; he could hear the ribald Scottish voices now, hilarious in memory."


    And, of course, to make it worse, Jamie wouldn't even kill him! John's honor (and ego) really took a beating that night.

    Thought we'd look at Lord John this week, and his early acquaintance with our friend Jamie.

    The following quote is taken from Voyager by Diana Gabaldon, chapter 8, Honor's Prisoner. Copyright ©1994 by Diana Gabaldon, All Rights Reserved.

    “'You’ve heard of Red Jamie Fraser, I expect?'

    Grey stiffened slightly, but kept his face as unmoved as possible. 'I should imagine most people have,' he said coldly. 'The man was notorious during the Rising.' Quarry had heard the story, damn him! All of it, or only the first part?

    Quarry’s mouth twitched slightly, but he merely nodded.

    'Quite. Well, we have him. He’s the only senior Jacobite officer here; the Highlander prisoners treat him as their chief. Consequently, if any matters arise involving the prisoners—and they will, I assure you—he acts as their spokesman.'"

    The following quote is taken from An Echo In The Bone, by Diana Gabaldon, Chapter 79. "The Cave." Copyright (c) 2009 by Diana Gabaldon. All rights reserved.

    The following is earlier in the same chapter...

    "Have ye ever been in the slightest doubt I needed ye?" he demanded.

    and if Claire WAS in any doubt, this likely erased it:

    "Of course,” he added practically, eyeing me as though estimating the effort involved in forcing me into the loch, “we wouldna need to do it in the water, unless ye liked; I could just dunk ye a few times, drag ye onto the shore, and—God, your arse looks fine, wi’ the wet linen of your shift clinging to it."

    “I’m honest enough to say that I dinna care what the right and wrong of it may be, so long as you are here wi’ me, Claire,” he said softly. “If it was a sin for you to choose me…then I would go to the Devil himself and bless him for tempting ye to it.” He lifted my foot and gently kissed the tip of my big toe.

    This week will be short Jamie quotes from each book. No, my math is not THAT bad - we'll do two books one day.

    “Be quiet, Sassenach,” he said with authority. “It isna going to take verra long.”

    The following quote is taken from Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, chapter 16, One Fine Day. Copyright ©1991 by Diana Gabaldon, All Rights Reserved.

         ”I should thank you,” I said, “for marrying me.
    I must say that I’d rather be here than in Fort William.

         ”I thank ye for the compliment, lady” he said with a slight bow.
    “So would I. And while we’re busy thanking each other,” he added,
    “I should thank you for marrying me, as well.”

         ”Er, well . . .” I blushed once more.

         ”Not only for that, Sassenach,” he said, his grin widening.
    ”Though certainly for that as well. But I imagine you’ve also saved my life for me,
    at least so far as the MacKenzies are concerned.”


    *********************************

    Thank you for the week, Jamie’s and Claire’s marriage is such a major theme in the Books and Diana makes their bond alive with small daily gestures.
    The beginning was a contract, and their relationship was based on mutual respect, trust and easiness in each other’s company.

    Happy Independence Day, my friends in the US.

         "There’s bread in the hutch, and little stew left in the kettle for you and Ian and Lizzie."
    Claire reached up and flicked a stray wood chip from his hair.
         He caught her fingers in his and kissed her knuckles lightly.
    She looked surprised, and then a faint warm glow came up under her skin.
    She came up a-tiptoe and kissed his mouth, then hurried after Brianna, already at the edge of the clearing.

    ****************************
    Small gestures of love and caring, Jamie and Claire value their marriage highly and even a few seconds are enough to keep the flame alive.

    The following quote is taken from Voyager by Diana Gabaldon, chapter 7. Faith in Documents Copyright ©1994 by Diana Gabaldon, All Rights Reserved.

         I haven’t got that absolute conviction that there’s something in life I’m meant to do−and you have.
         ”Is that good?” The edges of my nostrils were sore, and my eyes puffed from crying.
         He laughed shortly. ”It’s damned inconvenient, Claire. To you and me and Bree, all three. But my God, I do envy you sometimes”
         He reached out for my hand, and after a moment’s hesitation, I let him have it.
         ”To have that passion for anything”−a small twitch tugged the corner of his mouth−“or anyone.
    That’s quite splendid, Claire, and quite terribly rare.”

    The following quote is taken from Dragonfly In Amber by Diana Gabaldon, chapter 23, The Best Laid Plans of Mice and Men. Copyright ©1992 by Diana Gabaldon, All Rights Reserved.

         ”I’m not sweet” he said indignantly. “But I’m no such a selfish−Claire stop that!”
         ”You were planning to wait several more months?” I asked not stopping.
         ”I could,” he said, with what dignity was possible, under the circumstances.
    “I waited tw-twenty-two years, and I can . . .”
         ”No, you can’t,” I said, pulling back the bedclothes and admiring the shape so clearly visible beneath his nightshirt.
    I touched it, and it moved slightly, eager against my hand.
         ”Whatever God meant you to be, Jamie Fraser, it wasn’t a monk.”


    Jamie's embarrasment was so much fun. There's the scene from Turtle Soup and both are funny, this just fits my theme a bit better.

    Jamie held the cup for me, wiped my mouth with a cloth
    as though I were a small and messy child and laid me carefully back in the bed.

          ”Here,” I said, and took one of his hands between my own,
    rubbing the ointment into the crease of his knuckles, massaging his callused palms.
    Slowly, he relaxed, letting me stretch each finger
    as I worked my way down the joints and rubbed more ointment into the tiny scrapes and cuts.
    There were still marks on his hands where he had kept the leather reins wrapped tightly.

    She lifted her hands to his shoulders and brought him slowly down to his knees before her.
    She looked searchingly into his eyes−he did his best to look back.
    She smiled a little, then, and reached to untie the thong that held his own hair back.

    It fell around his shoulders in a dusty black tangle, smelling of burned things, stale sweat, and horses.
    He protested when she took up her hairbrush, but she ignored him, and made him bend his head over her lap,
    while she picked pine straw and sandburs from his head,
    slowly working out the snarls.
    His head bent lower, and lower still, and he found himself at last with his forehead pressed into her lap, breathing in the close scent of her.

    The following quotation is from A Breath of Snow and Ashes by Diana Gabaldon. Copyright 2005. All Rights Reserved. Chapter 75. Lice.


    "You're sure it's all right?" Brianna was still frowning, worried. "It isn't dangerous?"

    "Oh, aye, it's nothing," Roger assured her, glancing up from the newspaper. "I've had one just like that myself, ever since I was a kid. Just . . . here." His face changed abruptly as he spoke, and his hand rose, very slowly, to rest on the back of his head - just above the hairline, behind the left ear.

    He looked at me, and I saw his throat move as he swallowed, the jagged rope scar dark against the sudden paleness of his skin. The down hairs rose silently on my arms.

    "Yes," I said, answering the look, and hoping my voice didn't shake too noticeably. "That sort of mark is ... often hereditary."

    Jamie said nothing, but his hand closed on mine, squeezing tight."

    "I'm sorry," she said, feeling choked. "I know it's my fault - all of it. If I hadn't come back ..." She reached out, tentatively, and touched the ragged scar that circled his throat. He caught her hand and pulled it down.

    "Christ," he said softly,"if I could have gone anywhere to find either of my parents - including hell - Brianna, I would have done it." He looked up, his eyes bright green, and squeezed her hand hard. "If there's anyone in this world who understands that, hen, it's me."

    She squeezed back with both hands, hard. Relief that he didn't blame her loosened the cords of her body, but sorrow for his own losses - and hers - still filled throat and chest, heavy as wet feathers, and it hurt to breathe."

    In war, government and their armies were a threat, but it was so often the neighbors who damned or saved you.

    "Who?" I sad baldly.

    "I could guess," he said, with a shrug. "The McGillivrays? Richard Brown? Hodgepile's friends - if he had any. The friends of any of the other men we killed? The Indian ye met - Donner? - if he's still alive. Gerald Forbes? He's a grudge against Brianna, and she and Roger Mac would do well to remember it. Hiram Crombie and his lot?"

    "Hiram? I said dubiously. "Granted, he doesn't like you very much - and as for me - but ..."

    "Well, I do doubt it," he admitted. "But it's possible, aye? His people didna support the Jacobites at all; they'll no be pleased at an effort to overthrow the king from this side of the water, either."

    "When I was a bairn, I'd wake in my bed, and I'd ken at once where I was, aye? There was the window" - he flung out a hand - "and there was the basin and ewer on the table, wi' a blue band round the top, and there - he pointed toward a laurel bush - "was the big bed where Janet and Michael were sleepin', and Jocky the dog at the bed fit, farting like a beetle, and the smell of peat smoke from the fire and ... well, even if I should wake at midnight and the house all still around me, I should ken at once where I was."

    She nodded, the memory of her own old room in the house on Fury Street rising around her, vivid as a vision in the smoke. The striped wool blanket, itchy under her chin, and the mattress with the indentation of her body in the middle, cupping her like a huge, warm hand. Angus, the stuffed Scottie with the ragged tam-o-shanter who shared her bed, and the comforting hum of her parent's conversation from the living room below, punctuated by the baritone sax of the theme music from Perry Mason.

    "They'd ridden away then. Left them, without burial or word of consecration. In a way, that was more shocking than the killing. Roger had gone with the Reverend to more than one deathbed or scene of accident, helped comfort the bereaved, stood by as the spirit fled and the old man said the words of grace. It was what you did when someone died, turned toward God and at least acknowledged the fact.

    And yet . . . how could you stand over the body of a man you'd killed, and look God in the face?"

    "Do you remember the first person you knew of who had died?"

    His face went blank with surprise, then sharpened, thinking. After a moment, he shook his head.

    "My brother was the first who was important, but I kent others before him, surely."

    "I can't remember either." My parents, of course; their deaths had been personal - but born in England, I had lived in the shadow of cenotaphs and memorials, and people just beyond the bounds of my own family died regularly; I had a sudden vivid memory, of my father putting on a homburg and dark coat to go to the baker's wife's funeral. Mrs. Briggs, her name had been. But she hadn't been the first; I knew already about death and funerals. How old had I been then - four, perhaps?

    The following quote is taken from Written In My Own Heart's Blood by Diana Gabaldon, Chapter 74 The Sort of Thing That Will Make A Man Sweat and Tremble. Copyright 2014 by Diana Gabaldon. All Rights Reserved.


    I had Clarence packed with as much as he could reasonably be expected to carry. As he was a large mule, this was a substantial amount, including my small tent,
    a folding camp bed for surgery, and all I could cram in, in terms of bandages, lint, and disinfectant--I had both a small cask of purified saline solution and a couple
    of bottles of straight ethyl alcohol (these disguised as poison, with a large skull-and-crossbones labels painted on). Also, a jug of sweet oil for burns, me medicine
    chest, and bundles of raw herbs, large jars of prepared ointment, and dozens of small bottles and vials of tinctures and infusions. My surgical instruments, stitching
    needles, and sutures we in their own small box, this in a haversack with extra bandage rolls, to be carried on my person.

    I left Clarence tied and went to find out where the hospital tents were to be set up. The camp was milling with non-combatants and support personnel, but I was
    finally able to locate Denny Hunter, who told me that on the basis of General Greene's reports, the surgeons were to be dispatched to the village of Freehold,
    where there was a large church that could be used as a hospital.

    We passed the rest of the day in pleasant conversation, wandering among his reminiscences of the dear departed days when men were men, and the pernicious weed
    of civilization was less rampant upon the bonny wild face of the Highlands.

    At nightfall, we made camp in a clearing beside the road. I had a blanket, rolled and tied behind my saddle, and with this I prepared to spend my first night of freedom
    from the castle. As I left the fire and made my way to a spot behind the trees, though, I was conscious of the glances that followed me. Even in the open air, it seemed,
    freedom had definite limits.

    I put on a second pair of stockings, wrapped my thick wool cload around myself, and thanked God for the cold weather. A chill had struck in late September,
    setting the woods afire with a glory of red and gold, but also helpfully killing off the insects. The relief of camp life without flies was marvelous in itself—
    no surprise to me that flies had been one of the Ten Plagues of Egypt.

    The following quote is taken from Drums Of Autumn by Diana Gabaldon, chapter 19. Copyright ©1997 by Diana Gabaldon, All Rights Reserved.


    Jamie had been right, I thought, when he had suggested that we stay on the mountain, instead of returning to Cross Creek. It was the beginning of September; by Myer’s estimation, we would have two months of good weather—relatively good weather, I amended, looking up at the clouds—before the cold made shelter imperative. Time enough—maybe—to build a small cabin, to hunt for meat, to supply ourselves for the winter ahead.

    “It will be gey hard work,” Jamie had said. I stood between his knees as he sat perched high on a large rock, looking over the valley below. “And some danger to it; we may fail if the snow is early or if I canna hunt meat enough. I willna do it, if ye say nay, Sassenach. Would ye be afraid?”

    Afraid was putting it mildly. The thought made the bottom of my stomach drop alarmingly. When I had agreed to settle on the ridge, I had thought we would return to Cross Creek to spend the winter.

    We could have gathered both supplies and settlers in a leisurely manner, and returned in the spring in caravan, to clear land and raise houses communally. Instead, we would be completely alone, several days travel from the nearest tiny settlement of Europeans. Alone in a wilderness, alone through the winter.

    We had virtually nothing with us in the way of tools or supplies, save a felling ax, a couple of knives, a camp kettle and girdle, and my smaller medicine box. What if something happened, if Ian or Jamie fell ill or was hurt in an accident? If we starved or froze? And while Jamie was sure that our Indian acquaintances had no objection to our intent, I wasn’t so sanguine about any others who might happen along.

    Yes, I bloody well would be afraid. On the other hand, I’d lived long enough to realize that fear wasn’t usually fatal—at least not by itself. Add in the odd bear or savage, and I wasn’t saying, mind.

    For the first time, I looked back with some longing at River Run, at hot water and warm beds and regular food, at order, cleanliness . . . and safety.

    The tent seemed cluttered but relatively luxurious, being equipped with a camp bed and other furniture, the air within scented not only by damp canvas and wool but with the perfume of Ceylon tea, expensive wine, and almond biscuits.


    So, the word "camp" or a derivative is used more than 60 times in The Fiery Cross alone. By the end of the week, I hope to visit a camp in every book...and I believe if memory serves correctly, we can do it. Enjoy!

    The following quote is taken from Dragonfly In Amber by Diana Gabaldon, chapter 36, Prestonpans. Copyright ©1992 by Diana Gabaldon, All Rights Reserved.


    Four days' march found us on the crest of a hill near Calder. A sizable moor stretched out at the food of the hill, but we set up camp within the shelter of the trees above. There were two small streams cutting through the moss-covered rock of the hillside, and the crisp weather of early fall made it seem much more like picnicking than a march to war.



    Since camping seems to too many times get in the way of my QOTD posts, I thought it was fitting to mention the many times they've resided in a camp situation. Enjoy!

         ”I’m a violent man, and I ken it well,” he said quietly. He spread his hands out on his knees;
    big hands which could wield sword and dagger with ease, or choke the life from man. “So do you or−ye should.”

         ”You’ve never done anything you weren’t forced to do!”

         ”No?”

         ”I don’t think so,” I said, but even as we spoke, a shadow of doubt clouded my words.
    Even done from the most urgent necessity, did such things not leave a mark on the soul?

         ”Ye wouldna hold me in the same estimation as, say, a man like Stephen Bonnet?
    He might well say he acted from necessity.”

         ”If you think you have the slightest thing in common with Sephen Bonnet, you’re dead wrong,” I said firmly.

         He shrugged, half impatient, and shifted restlessly on the narrow bench.

         ”There’s nay much to choose between Bonnet and me, save that I have a sense of honor that he lacks. What else keeps me from turning thief?” he demanded.
